Karaoke girl unable to be a smooth criminal

A 26-year-old “karaoke girl” was arrested for allegedly taking $2,000 from a Chinese entrepreneur, 40, in Siem Reap town on Monday.

Police said he was hanging out, drunk and merry, at a hotel karaoke with one of its employees the night before, when he passed out, presumably after a rousing rendition of Mr Sandman.

He awoke at the hotel to find his bundle of cash was gone, along with his companion.

Police found and cuffed the woman in her home village. She confessed and was sent to court.
